We had an amazing time at KSC. The highlight, undoubtedly, being the guided bus tour out to the launch pads etc. The main centre was fascinating and thoroughly worth the drive out from Orlando - a definite must do
Beach Park, Illinois
We were here on a Tuesday not a big crowd which was nice getting into the iMax shows. Yes it was extremely hot out but going into the building that are air conditions really helped. Make sure you take bottled water with you on these hot days. Seeing Atlantis shuttle was very exciting. They have a memorial for all the astronauts who were lost in Challenger and Discovery missions. Don't miss out taking the picture in the astronaut jump suit!! The whole family can enjoy this attraction.
It has been a childhood dream . To come here ,and I was able to fulfill that dream today with my family . It was awesome
